RARITY: ¤¤ VALUE ¤¤¤
The Victor VI was the finest external horn made, first introduced in 1904. Selling for a whopping $100.00, it featured a large triple-spring motor, a brass horn, and a tapered tonearm. The cabinet was made of mahogany, and had gilded corner trim and gold plated hardware. The Victor VI was produced up until 1915, by which time it's price had been raised to $105.00. Approximately 16,000 of these phonographs were produced, and they are highly prized by collectors today. Many were sold with deluxe-style horns, including spearpoint styles and several others. At present, there is not a good correlation between serial number and production date for this model. Photograph shows a Victor VI with the optional polished brass flower horn.
